Circa Survive: Violent Waves

Circa Survive: Violent Waves

August 10, 2012 by Andrew Martin

With every other Circa Survive release, I waited anxiously, without fail, for a taste of the new music, my excitement growing exponentially until the album was finally playing in its entirety on my speakers. Irony struck with the sudden announcement, and also short wait I had with Violent Waves; the […]

The Panic Division: Eternalism

The Panic Division: Eternalism

January 31, 2012 by Andrew Martin

To call me a fan of The Panic Division would be a massive understatement. Whether it’s their loop-driven, aggressive pop anthems on debut “Versus” or the 80’s-influenced “Songs from the Glasshouse,” The Panic Division have a sound that’s accessibly refreshing. Colton Holliday is the songwriter and mastermind behind the Panic […]

Sainthood Reps: Monoculture

Sainthood Reps: Monoculture

July 14, 2011 by Andrew Martin

Any band featuring the cousin of Jesse Lacey from Brand New is going to draw some expected attention.  The mysterious existence and sudden release of a initially weird single, the title track “Monoculture” is less than expected, however.  Still, the hype built and, at last, Monoculture, the album, is here–and […]

Moving Mountains: Waves

Moving Mountains: Waves

April 26, 2011 by Andrew Martin

Moving Mountains are a band would proudly stand next to and hold their own against the greats of the late 90s/early 2000s. Bands like Sunny Day Real Estate, Appleseed Cast, Further Seems Forever, and Thursday come to mind. It was a better time for music.  It was a refreshing, rejuvenating […]

Jeniferever – Silesia

Jeniferever – Silesia

April 3, 2011 by Andrew Martin

Jeniferever is a band who play music I have self-coined as “sadpop.”  Orchestral, beautiful swooning melodies and spacey, atmospheric guitar textures envelope singer Kristofer Jönson’s beautiful vocals. I’ve listened to “Spring Tides,” their last effort, constantly for the last few winter seasons; the album stands alone as one of the most […]

Thursday: No Devolución

Thursday: No Devolución

April 1, 2011 by Andrew Martin

When I think of Thursday, I always think of the days of Island Records, when Thrice and Thursday were simultaneously signed and released their “radio” records, eventually to leave the majors and go back to doing music that is and always will be their own. “Vheissu” and “A City By […]

The Republic Of Wolves: Varuna

The Republic Of Wolves: Varuna

November 17, 2010 by Andrew Martin

The Republic of Wolves are one of those bands that you’ll never forget.  Their haunting music has enchanted me for some time now. Maybe it’s the fact that I have a certain affinity for music of a time passed; it’s most likely I have a soft spot for whispery, breathy […]

Ugly Colors: Perfect As We Are

Ugly Colors: Perfect As We Are

April 21, 2010 by Andrew Martin

Portland, Oregon technical rock group Ugly Colors got their start some years ago under the moniker Eli Keller.  Since then, the band has singlehandedly climbed the ladder to become one of my favorite (if not my favorite) bands.  Technical, challenging, but accessible and catchy as hell, Ugly Colors are here […]

Crime In Stereo: I Was Trying To Describe You To Someone

Crime In Stereo: I Was Trying To Describe You To Someone

February 1, 2010 by Andrew Martin

When “…Is Dead” was released, it became apparent that this group of underground heroes was on their way to create music that pushed the boundaries and limits of traditional Long Island post-hardcore.  Still – they weren’t quite there yet, and the album lacked consistency; while about half of the album […]
